I specialize in fine art photography, with the male figure as my primary subject. I photograph narratively, creating series of images that tell a story. Much of my photography is based on classical/Renaissance/mythological imagery. Past projects include Episodes in the Life of Hercules, illustrating the Tarot Cards, and currently I'm working on a "Human Commodities" series (see my avatar as an example). I use non-traditional models to broaden the definition of who is and can be a model, and to question and challenge traditional notions of who and what can be a successful model.
NOTE: at this time, I am no longer seeking models through Model Mayhem. I have had too many flakes who think it is totally cool to cancel at the very last minute or just not show up, even when I've travelled 2500 miles to shoot with them.
Experienced and first-time models are welcome. I work in a very traditional manner, shooting large-format film and printing with "alternative" processes. Working with me is a very different experience than with most photographers you may shoot with today because the style of work I do and the method in which I work is slower, thoughtful, and, frankly, challenging. If you're up for having a fun shoot, producing some beautiful images, and getting a good workout to boot, contact me.
Please Note: I am a professional, I treat all my models with professionalism and courtesy. I expect the same in return. If you cannot make a scheduled appointment, call 24 hours in advance to cancel. Short of major personal emergency, you KNOW if you can make it or not 24 hours in advance. If you have a problem with this simple requirement, don't book time with me.
I've been published internationally. My work has been exhibited in juried exhibitions throughout the US. I write a blog about antique and historic photo processes, collecting vintage images and using large format cameras at:
